MySQL Community Server 5.6.32 has been released

Dear MySQL users,

MySQL Server 5.6.32, a new version of the popular Open Source
Database Management System, has been released. MySQL 5.6.32 is
recommended for use on production systems.

For an overview of what's new in MySQL 5.6, please see


     Starting with 5.6.11, Microsoft Windows packages for MySQL 5.6
     are available both as a "full" installer and as a "web" installer.
     The full installer is significantly larger and comes bundled with
     the latest software releases available. This bundle makes it easy
     to download and configure a full server and development suite.

     The web installer doesn't come bundled with any actual products
     and instead relies on download-on-demand to fetch only the
     products you choose to install. This makes the initial download
     much smaller but increases install time as the individual products
     will need to be downloaded.

For information on installing MySQL 5.6.32 on new servers or upgrading
to MySQL 5.6.32 from previous MySQL releases, please see


MySQL Server is available in source and binary form for a number of
platforms from our download pages at


Not all mirror sites may be up to date at this point in time, so if you
can't find this version on some mirror, please try again later or choose
another download site.

We welcome and appreciate your feedback, bug reports, bug fixes,
patches, etc:


The following section lists the changes in the MySQL 5.6 since

Changes in MySQL 5.6.32 (2016-07-29)

   Bugs Fixed

     * InnoDB: Full-text search auxiliary tables could be
       dropped by one session while being access by another.
       (Bug #23742339)

     * InnoDB: Selecting full-text index information schema
       tables for a deleted table caused a segmentation fault.
       (Bug #23479595)

     * InnoDB: Rollback of a full-text index synchronization
       operation raised an assertion. The rollback operation
       attempted to acquire a mutex still held by the background
       synchronization thread. (Bug #23320569)

     * InnoDB: Setting innodb_monitor_enable to all did not
       enable all counters. (Bug #22576241, Bug #80083)

     * Replication: When using row-based replication and InnoDB,
       replication slaves reverted to using an older locking
       scheme when a transaction had already acquired an AUTOINC
       lock related to a LOAD FILE or INSERT ... SELECT type of
       statement, reducing replication slave performance. The
       fix ensures that sql_command is set correctly for any of
       the DML events such as WRITE_ROWS_EVENT, UPDATE_EVENT,
       and DELETE_EVENT. (Bug #79324, Bug #22247668)

     * Replication: When using statement-based or mixed binary
       logging format with --read-only=ON, it was not possible
       to modify temporary tables. (Bug #62008, Bug #12818255)
       References: See also: Bug #14294223, Bug #16561483.

     * MySQL Server upgrades performed using RPM packages failed
       when upgrading from MySQL 5.5 Community to MySQL 5.6
       Community or MySQL 5.5 Commercial to MySQL 5.6
       Commercial. (Bug #23736787)

     * The code for reading character set information from
       Performance Schema statement events tables (for example,
       events_statements_current) did not prevent simultaneous
       writing to that information. As a result, the SQL query
       text character set could be invalid, which could result
       in a server exit. Now an invalid character set causes
       SQL_TEXT column truncation. (Bug #23540008)

     * A buffer overflow in the regex library was fixed. (Bug

     * Certain arguments to NAME_CONST() could cause a server
       exit. (Bug #23279858)

     * For unit-testing with the MySQL test suite, the make
       unit-test command is no longer available. The ctest
       program should be used instead. See Unit Tests Added to
       Main Test Runs
(http://dev.mysql.com/doc/mysqltest/2.0/en/unit-tests-fro <http://dev.mysql.com/doc/mysqltest/2.0/en/unit-tests-from-mtr.html> m-mtr.html <http://dev.mysql.com/doc/mysqltest/2.0/en/unit-tests-from-mtr.html>). (Bug #23273434)

     * ST_Distance() could raise an assertion for NULL return
       values. (Bug #22760390)

     * With the query cache enabled, executing a prepared
       statement with CURSOR_TYPE_READ_ONLY and then again with
       CURSOR_TYPE_NO_CURSOR caused the server to return an
       error. (Bug #22559575, Bug #80026)

     * mysql_real_connect() was not thread-safe when invoked
       with the MYSQL_READ_DEFAULT_FILE or
       MYSQL_READ_DEFAULT_GROUP option enabled. (Bug #22322504,
       Bug #79510)

     * Installing MySQL from a yum or zypper repository resulted
       in /var/log/mysqld.log being created with incorrect user
       and group permissions. (Bug #21879694, Bug #78512)

     * If a stored function updated a view for which the view
       table had a trigger defined that updated another table,
       it could fail and report an error that an existing table
       did not exist. (Bug #21142859, Bug #76808)

     * If an INSTALL PLUGIN statement contained invalid UTF-8
       characters in the shared library name, it caused the
       server to hang (or to raise an assertion in debug
       builds). (Bug #14653594, Bug #23080148)

     * For multibyte character sets, LOAD DATA could fail to
       allocate space correctly and ignore input rows as a
       result. (Bug #76237, Bug #20683959, Bug #23080148)
       References: This issue is a regression of: Bug #14653594.
